Listing an Item for Sale – AUCTION


Listing an Item for Sale – AUCTION/BUY IT NOW (OR BOTH).

Once you have registered with us, you can start to list your items – this is  quick and easy.

‘Click’ on  the blue ‘Sell’ tab on the top bar and chose from the menu on the left, by clicking  ’New Auction’.

Now chose the category most suited to the item you are selling, ‘click’ into the category and then ‘click’ on the relevant sub-category, i.e For the Horse (category) then saddles, bridles etc.. (whatever your choice) as a sub-category.

Then put in a title, i.e ‘Jumping Saddle for Sale’ and below this in the box provided, a full description of what you are selling.  Be factual and clear with your description otherwise you run the risk of the sale not being completed or having to refund the customer.  We will not tolerate any inappropriate, misleading or offensive listings or pictures, bad behaviour or language or libellous or defamatory material on our site and expect you to act in accordance with HayBay’s User Agreement and we reserve the right to suspend your account at any time we feel necessary.

Enter the amount of the items (same) that you have for sale, the time that you want the auction to start (no extra cost), Choose the duration of your advert, any period up to 30 days is the same price. Put in the starting price that you require (no extra cost for this choice), a Reserve Price (the minimum that you are prepared to accept – again, no extra cost), a ‘Buy it Now’ price (your ideal price to sell for – or make the advert ‘Buy it Now Only’ if you want, instead of an auction)  and in the next box any postage/shipping that may be charged. Then tick the means of payment that you will accept (add your PayPal Account information for ease) and then enter the security code shown, in the box. Check that your contact and Location information is correct and if you wish to, add another region (for an extra charge), and your website if required.  Fill in the drop down choices i.e colour, size, condition add a mapping address if required, so that customers may find you easier. Please also be aware that this may also alert burglars to the address of your item.

Click ‘Next Step’ to continue and you may now add up to TWO YouTube videos (for an extra charge) by entering the YouTube video’s URL (copy and paste from YouTube) then ‘click’ the ‘add this video’ button. Next, you can add up to 6 pictures/photos (first TWO are FREE) by clicking the ‘select file’ button. This now allows you to select your picture/photo from your device and then you should click the ‘upload’ button. Some devices i.e iPads and iPhones do not have Flash Player installed and may request that you ‘click’ the manual upload button which isn’t a problem.  Remember that when using pictures/photos from iPads or iPhones, you should take the photo with device on it’s side i.e longways (landscape), so that the picture is uploaded the right way up ! ‘Click’ the ‘Continue’ button.  The next display shows the cost of the listing and details any additional extras available to you to enhance your listing (some with extra charges shown). Tick any choices you want and enter your ‘Twitter’ Username if desired.  Then click the ‘Preview’ button and your ‘proof’ advert is ready for you to accept & submit or amend if required by closing the preview so that you may alter as desired.

Your Shopping Cart is now displayed, with a full description of your advert choices and charges.  After you have ‘checked out’, you can display/print your invoice for the transaction and then return back to your account.  Your Auction Listing should now be placed.

If your listing does not sell, we offer a 10% discount on your insertion fee to re-list, please see our PRICES page.
